Chopin at 200

Monday (February 22) may be the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frédéric Chopin in 1810. I use the verb "may" because March 1 was also thought to have been the birthday of this great Polish composer and pianist.

Regardless, a bicentennial is imminent. In honor of the occasion, below is Chopin's "Nocturne #20 in C Sharp Minor" for this week's "YouTube clip for a peaceful weekend."

Cue the child prodigy.
